But he followed up those big names with the one most important to him when he thanked the woman who's helped make him the man he is today — and who's helping to make their 3-year-old son, Jack, the man he'll be one day.

"And of course, my wife, Anna Faris," he said, turning his attention to her. "Darlin', our son was destined to be tough, but thanks to you, he'll be smart, too."

It was an incredibly sweet statement, but not a particularly surprising one coming from Pratt. The actor has often opened up about his love for his wife.
